Recently wrapped up a shoot comprised of individuals and groups.

I'm going to upload images to an on line gallery for customer preview and order. The gallery will be on my personal site.

Images are a mix of port and landscape. Since I have no idea what customers will order size wise, 8x10 / 5x7 / 4x6, is there an ideal crop to use for all images? Sort of a "master crop" if you will.

Yes, I understand that all aspect ratios are not created equal. So back to the original question ... is there such a thing as a "preferred preview so customer can order what they wish" crop?

I'm perplexed by this issue and do not wish to waste time uploading multiple crops of the same image unless necessary.

Seeking experienced advise ...

Thanks -

Clueless

Just upload a small version of the uncropped image. The customer can then choose the cropping they want for the desired print size.
cheers,

Thanks for the reply.

Figured just a general crop then let em order what they wish.

Just overthinking a little and needed to hear the words.

Thanks again

I setup a client area on my website to sell prints directly, much as you've described.

For what it's worth, I use a 5x7 crop for the display, which is a nice "middle of the road" crop if your selling 4x6 thru 8x10 prints. So far no one ordering prints of any size has even commented on the slight cropping differences.

If you want to see an example of what my client area looks like, send me an email or PM and I'll give you a client access code.

Regards,

Dave
